Customers' comments on this book:
Andrea DeyArmin wrote: “Since we’ve been collecting MANY homeschooling resources over these last few years, my husband and I decided that we would each allow ourselves only ONE book each from the vendor hall at this last conference. After hearing Renee’s engaging and practical sessions, I purchased the last copy of this book as my one book. And I’m SO glad I did! It’s packed full of great ideas that are grounded in Biblical principles. It gives me knowledge I can use without feeling overwhelmed by what I haven’t done already. Thank you, Renee! Only a few days after reading it, my husband observed how much I had accomplished in just a few days. I proudly proclaimed, ‘THAT’S the power of a focused mother!’ God bless you as you continue to encourage us mothers!”

Mrs. E. Angerman wrote, “Absolutely recommend—so insightful & inspiring! I am amazed at all the helpful tips you provide in this book. It was an answer to prayer for me. As a homeschool mom, I am always looking for inspiration and guidance on teaching, discipline, managing the home, and being the best wife and mom I can be. Your Biblical advice on how to be a focused mom and set the proper tone in the home were the encouraging words I needed to hear. Your tools/discipline techniques have already helped us be more consistent and our children more obedient. The teaching tips and ideas for triggering the brain in simple easy ways make learning fun and productive. The tips on keeping your home organized, clean, and cozy were very helpful. I will continue to reference your tips & share/suggest your book to others. I also love the additional tips and tools from your website and hoping to get your piano and typing lessons too. I highly recommend this book. Best money I have spent!”

A. H. wrote, “This is a book I keep nearby in very handy places - including the bathroom! - for a quick pick-me-up during my day. It is CHOCK FULL of nuggets of wisdom, advice, encouragement and ideas. Mrs. Ellison raises the bar for homeschooling moms and shows you how to get there! I would encourage anyone to get as many of her materials as possible. She is truly an inspiration to me.“

C. J. called this book “Life changing” and wrote, “I have already finished reading Teacher’s Secrets & Motherhood Savvy after getting it in the mail yesterday…life changing. I can’t begin to tell you the depths of my despair with homeschooling and motherhood…just looking for answers as to how to make it all work. I am so grateful to have “stumbled” upon it! Thank you for sharing such insight! I really needed it.”

Miriam in California called this Absolutely the Best Book I have ever read on these two subjects! She wrote, “Your book was unbelievable. I literally told 900 plus people to buy the book. I have read tons of discipline, parenting and homeschool books over the years but this book just really spoke to me like no other. It has so many practical ideas. After reading just the first chapter, I put some of her ideas to work and saw results immediately. I was having trouble bonding with my middle child and just doing a few things she suggested made a huge difference. Not only has he warmed up to me but he started being a wonderful big brother, just to earn my praise! There is so much wisdom in this book, you want to read the book over and over again with a great big highlighter! These are the ideas that I wish an older lady told me. So many young mothers could really be helped by her advice. (I am not that young, 38. It’s good for all ages). This is definitely a book you won’t regret buying and once you open it, you can’t put it down. It’s a great investment! It’s really worth a lot more than she is asking.”
